      Buying Train Tickets Online

      Russia Yesterday

      I'm trying to buy a St Petersburg to Moscow train ticket using rdz.ru The site takes me through the reservation and the payment with no problems (I've created a log-in profile) but after I've completed the payment bit, including the security verification, it declines the transaction.

      I'm in the UK, using a Visa debit card.

      Has anyone else here had similar problems?

      Thanks in advance for any feedback.

    • Worried about visit to St. Petersburg in May

      Saint Petersburg Mar 26, 2014 at 2:23 PM

      Going to St. Petersburg in May (2014). We are Canadian, in our 60's and going on our own for 5 days. Already have our VISA. Coming in from Helsinki on train. Frankly we are very concerned about what we might face when we get there given all that is happening ..... Should we be worried? Our consulate website basically says nothing except that they have limited services now. (They closed the St. Petersburg branch)
      Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

      Military stuff to see in Novgorod or nearby places?

      by Drugness Online Now Dec 29, 2012 at 11:24 AM

      Hello all
      Planning my first ever trip to Novgorod and am curious about how many monuments, museums and memorials to the Great Patriotic War, the Siege of Leningrad, Afghanistan etc that I may find there?
      If anyone could recommend unusual stuff like this, i'd love to hear about it.
      Thank you all!
      I'm going to be putting a similar post in the St P and Moscow sections so it might appear to be a trible post.
      Cheers guys!

      Best way to travel to Velikiy Norvgorod from St Petersburg and then vice versa

      by Drugness Online Now Dec 12, 2012 at 5:03 AM

      Hello all
      From the online research I have done, I take it there is no train line running between these 2 cities? :)
      I'm planning to spend 2 nights here. Is that enough? It's hardly too much? :)
      If you could advise the best transport routes between here and St P, I would be most grateful
      Thank you all
